17.2. Delegating Host Management
Hosts are delegated authority over other hosts through the host-add-managedby utility. This creates a managedby entry. Once the managedby entry is created, then the host can retrieve a keytab for the host over which it has delegated authority.
- Log in as the admin user.
[root@server ~]# kinit admin
- Add the
managedbyentry. For example, this delegates authority over client2 to client1.
[root@server ~]# ipa host-add-managedby client2.example.com --hosts=client1.example.com
- Obtain a ticket as the host
[root@client1 ~]# kinit -kt /etc/krb5.keytab host/client1.example.com
- Retrieve a keytab for
[root@client1 ~]# ipa-getkeytab -s server.example.com -k /tmp/client2.keytab -p host/client2.example.com Keytab successfully retrieved and stored in: /tmp/client2.keytab
